How I Carry Luxury
Casual and Comfortable in the City
Every season brings new trends. Sometimes, I give in – can you say glitter eye shadow? Oh my gosh, I hope no one has pictures of me from 1999. Yikes! Other trends I avoid because they 1) just aren’t my style (i.e. semi-suggestive girlboss t-shirts), or 2) I don’t think I could carry them into my wardrobe in the future. This summer, however, I found a trendy, summer bag that I just can’t get enough of!
Let me introduce you to my little friend, Cult Natural.
I will say this is a delicate little thing. But, I like that I can only fit so much in it because it forces me to consider my time out and really enjoy myself. A girl can’t always bring her day planner everywhere, right?! (More on my favorite back-to-school / I’m-out-of-school-but-like-to-adult planner soon!)
So, that’s just what I did. The mister and I headed out to one of my favorite cafes in Philadelphia, formerly known as “Gavin’s Cafe,” “Jezabel’s” is the best place to find yummy lunch empanadas, and alfajores – the delectable Argentinian cookie! (And FYI, if you’re all about that dulce de leche life, you can now order these cookies even if you don’t live in Philly!)
Cookies and coffee never go out of style.
When I pal around with Ricky on the weekends, I like to dress down for a Saturday hangout, or dress up for a Saturday date night. This particular weekend, I paired a classic summer staple – the denim dress – with my new summer must-have over cookies and coffee. The denim dress will mostly live on for as long as America loves it’s jeans. And, I’d say, that’s probably forever.
Denim dresses are, for the most part pretty affordable. You can buy them with fringe, ruffles, zippers, bottons, or just about any detailing that fits your personality. It’s a versatile and durable material, especially when you opt for just above inexpensive and choose pieces with good hems. TIP: don’t be afraid to dry these clothing items flat, unless you are trying to return those jean to their original fit. Drying denim on hanging racks allows the wash to live on for just a little longer.

I’m betting this architectural bag will continue on in the latest fall fashion! I’m dying for the green or pink one, but I’m trying to save up for another box of alforjes first!
